If your looking for peace and tranquility please do not come here!

But if you enjoy ripping it up and and meeting lots of other families who enjoy the same things, come on down.

Not to mention the views and 1000 KM of trails and evenings around the campfire (endless supply of wood) and flowing beverages.

This is where you will find us in the Crowsnest Pass Alberta. Click image for larger version

Another spot I am enjoying more ever year is camping on the in-laws homestead south of Weyburn SK for annual get together with DW clan. Enjoyed spectacular weather last August.

This is that flat area of the country where they claim "it takes 3 days to watch your dog run away"!Click image for larger version

Not telling. Hard enough now to get a spot now. Only way is to try to reserve one in early spring. Our favorite spot was already booked for the entire season weeks ago.

Ten years ago you didn't even need a reservation and there were always good spots right on the water available. You just drove around and found an empty one and then told them what spot you were on. Now all the campsites are reserved for the entire season before the campground even opens for year.

I will say that just about any spot on the water in an area where no ATVs, dirt bikes, power boats, or jet skis are allowed is pretty high on our list.

Yep. The Red Coconut in Ft. Myers is like that. We used to love going there, but now it's very difficult to reserve a spot. It was nice, right on the beach, Gulf Coast of FL.

Sorry my idea of boondocking doesn't include a campground! Prefer spot is in dessert outside of Yuma Proving Grounds, north of Yuma, AZ. If you don't like the neighbors, pack up the camp and find a different part of the dessert.

I agree except ours are quite mountain lakes and streams with no neighbors, with lots of hiking and places to explore by canoe or kayak. And yes, its technically a campground (run by the State) but the good sites are so far apart it's just you, the loons out on the lakes, and once in a while a bear, or an Eagle fishing off the bow of your kayak. Many of the lakes around there can only be reached by hiking and there is no sign of anyone else for miles. Sometimes we use the RV as base camp and canoe out to remote campsites where the only access is by canoe or kayak (no motorized boats allowed).

Vedauwoo

We have been here a few times. Younger son and daughter-in-law are avid rock climbers and Vedauwoo, Wyoming is just off the Interstate between Cheyenne and Laramie. There is a fairly decent Forest Service Campground but there are quite a few dispersed campsites on the road. There are no hookups. We were there last year and two young Bull Moose fought (more like they sparred like the large teenagers they were)t for 40 minutes and, at times within 25 meters of our rig. We are solar autonomous so there were no generator noise. This happened near dawn and while the rest of the family (wife, son, daughter-in-law and one year old grandson were enthralled), I slept through most of it. They were so excited that they did not awaken me.

Yucata

We RV'ed to Yucatan 3 times (returned twice as younger son has said). We spent three winters on the beach about 30 km north of Tulum. Had famly members fly down and join us and we snorkeled and sailed about on our sailing blowup kayak (Sails to Go). Visited a number of cenotes for diving, quite a few Mayan sites for archaeological wanderings and birding, made it down to Belize and Tikal, Guatemala. The road to Kalukmal (or Calukmal) on Guatemala/Belize border had trees a little low for our 34' 5th wheel and did not have time to request permission to cut limbs from Mexican Archaeological Department. Wrecked on way back last year and Mexican Insurance has finally (after 55 weeks) agreed to pay in full (minus deductible) but Temporary Import Licenses still need to be cancellled. So we flew down for 12 weeks in Guatemala and Honduras. Hope to make it down to Yucatan/Belize/Tikal this next winter.

Photos from top to bottom are:
Older son sailing (he and family camped in tents as did niece while daughter
and fiance were in 5th wheel with us)
Our setup about 50 meters from water. There are a great crew of folks that
spend two to three months there. It cost just around $400/month for space,
water (for shower only), electricity (intermitent) and sewer.
Paddling out to take younger son sailing (he is an elite class athlete and not sure
why I am doing the paddling.
Kalukmal. One of the largest sites but you have to climb on top of one
pyramid to see the others: Howler Monkeys, Ocelated Turkeys,
Ant-Tangers etc. Wish to return.
Reed and Elaine

Vedauwoo

Vedauwoo is one of our favorite places also. We were there last August. We were going to stay one night, but we stayed a week. Only one or two other campers during the week. That weekend there was a vertical dancing show with live music. Something we hadn't seen before, very entertaining.
